IDB loan agreement used to pay for COVAX vaccines


    T&T’s first tranche of COVID-19 vaccines from the COVAX Facility was paid for using a loan agreement programme with the IDB.

    This was put on the record today by Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh.

    When asked why this method of payment was chosen, Mr Deyalsingh said it was a quick way of getting the money.

    Regarding the upcoming national vaccination roll out, the Minister revealed the numbers being targeted.
